Dealing with Lockdown Loneliness

Loneliness courtesy of NYT
Many of us are having to cope with loneliness during the  coronavirus lockdown.  Not being able to meet up with friends, family members or loved ones can be challenging.  It can be even more difficult for those who are self-isolating.  Some suggestions for dealing with loneliness include: 
  •  Embrace the technology!  Stay in touch using video technology, such as Skype or Zoom;  

    • Plan your day and stick to a schedule;  
    • Stay active.  Even a short walk every day can help; 
    • Read online articles (like this one) for fun and to increase your knowledge base; 
    • Join a Meetup film group or Facebook watch party to view films online with others;
    • Avoid watching too many news programmes about Covid-19, as too much information can be confusing and increase our stress levels.
Below, I have listed some resources that can help us to cope with loneliness and isolation.  


Personally, I find that helping others is the best way to feel connected - and useful.  That's why I have posted these coronavirus resources.

Success Strategies: What's Haunting YOU?

Beautiful, black heavily melanated black cat











    In this show, we discussed some of the issues that have come out of the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence 2020 and previous years.  Go here to listen to the show

In case you have not heard or read them, go here for Readings from the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence 2020.  


For the bIogging carnival, I spoke with Ken Fero, filmmaker whose film, Injustice, the police tried to ban back in 2001.  Now, in 2020, these issues still haunt us.  Go here to listen to our conversation

Ceri Buckmaster read from her blog post, "A Letter on the Anniversary of the Shooting of Cherry Groce".  Cherry Groce's shooting has parallels with the killing of Breonna Taylor earlier this year. 


So what's haunting YOU?

Ceri and Zhana Discuss NVC

I am so glad Ceri Buckmaster is now a Certified Trainer in NVC (Nonviolent Communication).  She has supported me so much with issues in my life and also supported my practice of NVC.  Ceri has so many skills in terms of connecting with empathy towards ourselves and others.  So I was very interested in holding this conversation.  

Often, we don't want to contact, or communicate with, the parts of ourselves which are in pain or distress.  We also talked about our different conditioning as Black woman and a white woman, and how our feelings and needs are conditioned by race.   

If you want to learn more about NVC and cultivating self-empathy, have a listen.  

Go here for details about Ceri's next NVC Foundation Training.  

Go here for details about Ceri's Self-Empathy Training.  

Plus go here to listen to Ceri, other bloggers and myself read blogs from the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence

This conversation was recorded about six weeks ago.  I also mention a forthcoming discussion of the representation of Black people/people of African heritage on British TV currently.  I have some serious questions about why there is so much programming about the Black experience on UK TV now, in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, which was watched all over the world.  (This is not just about the programming during October, which is Black History Month in the UK).  You can listen to this discussion here:  "What's Haunting YOU?".

A Letter on the Anniversary of the Shooting of Cherry Groce

Cherry Groce
Cherry Groce was shot in the back by police in Brixton in 1985, and died some years later as a result of the shooting. 

I note that Ken Fero has said that the children of those shot by the police – like Cherry Groce – or who died in encounters with the police were left without any support, and the experience Lee Lawrence, the son of Cherry Groce, echoes this (see below). However, Ceri has written this letter to Mr. Lawrence to let him know that she does care, that people do care about him and his mother. 

Ceri also reflects on the parallels between the shooting of Ceri Groce and the killing of Breonna Taylor.   

Ceri Buckmaster 

Lee Lawrence
This project of letters is inspired by ‘My Dungeon Shook’, a letter written by James Baldwin in
1963 to his 15-year-old nephew on the One Hundredth Anniversary of Emancipation.

In the letter, James Baldwin writes to his nephew - also called James - about the times he is growing up in and the societal challenges younger James is facing. It’s a moving letter of love and encouragement to foster resilience and clearsightedness.

Taking this letter as a starting point, this project is an invitation to write a letter to someone, (a loved one, a colleague, a politician, a section of the community, an organisation, a business leader, a celebrity, an adversary, an opponent) on the anniversary of a historical event.

So, here is my letter to Lee Lawrence, on the 35 year anniversary of the shooting of his mother Cherry Groce in Brixton, South London (28th September 1985) and the six-month anniversary of the murder of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.


Dear Mr Lawrence,

I hope you are well, as well as you can be with all that is happening and all that you have had to deal with in your life.

I recently read the article about your life and your mother’s life in the Guardian. The same day I read that, I found out about the historical settlement of $12m dollars to the family of Breonna Taylor for her murder back in 13th March 2020. When I heard about the settlement, I wondered what it must have been like for you to hear all about the tragedy of Breonna murder on that terrible night in March through a ‘No-knock warrant’ raid. You must be reliving so much through each and every similar event that happens around the world.

I am grateful to hear more about your experience and there are so many things that stand out from the account I read. I was very sad to hear how no one at school asked you how you were coping with the stress of your mum being shot and how you didn’t have any support to integrate the trauma.

I really got how bewildering and hurtful it was that your mum’s story got so little airtime and exposure leading you to wonder why no one seemed to be interested. It’s like you were saying Say Her Name back in the late 80s and early 90s, way before hashtags and social media. I can only imagine the loneliness that no-one caring must have lead you into.

I’m struck by how many years you have plugged away to try to get justice and that when your mum sadly died in 2011 of kidney failure, the pathologist’s report that the kidney failure was linked to the shooting triggered an Inquest. Then in 2014, 29 years after the shooting, Southwark Coroner’s court found that the badly administered raid and the shooting contributed to your mum’s death. In 2016, the High Court ruled that the Met had a duty of care to you and your brothers and sisters.

I’m recounting this back to you to show I am listening and tracking all the twists and turns of the case. There are of course many more details and years and years of your life dedicated to honouring your mum’s life and trying to carve out a path for yourself.

I am inspired and very grateful that you have invested so much effort to create positive outcomes from this experience, such as the programme to support people who have been traumatised as a result of wrongful police actions, setting up the Cherry Groce foundation, working as a voluntary consultant for the police and engaging in a restorative process in order to be heard by the Met. But I hear the despair that the system is broken as there isn’t the will to fix it and you are still waiting for recommendations to be implemented.

What I’m hoping to achieve from this letter is to raise awareness of what you have been through, so that white people (like myself) in the UK don’t think that police violence is something that just happens in the US, that it is an unresolved blight in our country and there is much work to be done to change police attitudes and the white general public’s lack of care and attention, so that no family ever has to go through again what you have gone through.

With my very best wishes to you and your family.

Yours sincerely,

Ceri Buckmaster

Review of The Angel Experiment

One thing I really enjoyed about The Angel Experiment was that it came with 21 free audio downloads - one for each day.  In other words, pay for a book, get a 21-day course.      


After the usual info about angels, and a description of her first real-life encounter with angels, the author, Corin Grillo, gives us 21 ways to connect with different angels and Archangels, as well as some of the higher orders, including Cherbim and Seraphim.  

Grillo's writing is clear and accessible.  The free audios include a short invocation and short  guided meditation for each day.  Each chapter gives a way to address a specific area of life with angelic guidance.  Topics include, among others,
  • Releasing Worry, 
  • Releasing Grief, 
  • Harmony, 
  • Courage, and 
  • Playfulness. 
If you don't want to download the audios, the text for each is printed in the relevant chapter.  Each chapter also includes "downloads" - affirmations to help you change your life.  We are encouraged to take notes in a journal about our experiences at the end of each chapter, and to review these notes once the 21 days are completed.  So it really is like a course.  

One thing that did not work for me was Grillo's repeated use of terms like "God/Creator/Source".  Being a Buddhist, I do not believe in a "God/Creator/Source". The author states early on in the book that she is not religious - so why use religious terms?  However, if you relate to these terms, you may enjoy this. 
Another slightly strange note is when Grillo, towards the end of the book, asks the question, "based on your findings ... are angels real?".  Having asked and answered this question, sharing her experiences, at the beginning of the book, it seemed out of place and unnecessary to ask it again.  

I doubt whether someone who is convinced that angels don't exist will be interested in this book.  But if you want to strengthen, and gain clarity about, your connection with angels, I heartily recommend The Angel Experiment.

The Lions' Gate - Huge Shift TODAY, 8/8


These powerful healing energies are available to us for the next few days, so even if you miss the live channelling, you can still tap into the energies.  

I have only recently found out about the Lions' Gate.  I know very little about it, but it can provide a huge shift of energy.  Apparently, the Lions' Gate portal is open NOW.  Anything that can give us more power is something I am interested in, and I want to share this with you.  This film includes a channeled message from Archangel Metatron. 

PLEASE NOTE:  I am not making any profit from this.  I am sharing it because it is a point of power from which you may be able to benefit.  

Apparently, the Lions' Gate was known to the ancient Egyptians/Kemetians.  See also:   The 8-8 Lions Gate Portal Activation for a bit more background information.

How Positive Affirmations Change My Mindset on the Really Hard Mom Days

How Positive Affirmations Change My Mindset on the Really Hard Mom Days  

I really like this blog post because it shows how difficult parenting can be at times, and also shows how self-empathy dan help us to connect with others, including children.

I also like the way she used the affirmations, by attaching them to the bathroom mirror and saying them out loud 3x every time she saw them. I enjoy this creativity.

For more about empathy and NVC, see NVC Resources and Books about Nonviolence.

25 Confidence-Boosting Affirmations for Your Child

While I like some of these affirmations, some of them use language that can actually alienate us from children (and ourselves). Nonviolent Communication (NVC) suggests that we avoid terms like “good”, “bad”, “evil” - moralistic language. This is judgmental language which disconnects us.

Statements such as “I love your creativity”, “I love spending time with you” or “I believe in you” are statements I enjoy. In these affirmations, the parent is taking responsibility for his/her thoughts and feelings.

For more about NVC, see NVC Resources and Books about Nonviolence.

Affirmations for Parents Update

I have started adding links to other people's blogs about affirmations for parents.  I find some of these resources very helpful, and I think you will, too. Go here for affirmations for parents, and for resources for using Nonviolent Communication (NVC) with children. 

Being a parent is a challenging job, as I’m sure you know. It is hard to get right, and ever so easy – and dangerous - to get wrong.

As a parent, you have the opportunity to help your children grow into happy, healthy adults who contribute to others and lead satisfying lives.

Parenting in the 21st century can be complicated and confusing. As a Transformational Growth Consultant and former child, I have worked with hundreds of parents and other former children. I have seen the effects poor parenting have had, and the damage it has done, and I know that there are many parents and children who are stressed, anxious, suffering and in pain right now. I have written Affirmations for Parents to help you be the kind of parent you want to be.

Affirmations are powerful tools to help you improve your life and your relationships with your children and yourself.

This is about you taking control of your life and your relationship with your child/ren.

The messages we receive repeatedly, on a daily basis, are the ones that have the most profound effect on our thoughts and emotions, and on our lives.

We are responsible for the thoughts, the words, the pictures that inhabit our minds. Other people give us messages all the time. And if we receive these messages over and over again, repeatedly, they take up residence in our minds. They move in!  And they live there. They inhabit our minds.

The more we have positive thoughts, beliefs and attitudes rolling around in our heads, the more easily we can create positive results for ourselves and our families.

50 Coronavirus Jokes That Should Help You Get Through Quarantine

Apparently, laghter may really be the best medicine.  According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter stimulates the body's organs by increasing oxygen intake to the heart, lungs and muscles, and triggers the release of endorphins.  It also helps people handle stress. 

Once again, these jokes should bring a smile to your face during this horrible coronavirus outbreak and lockdown.  

They include a BRILLIANT  Where's Waldo - Coronavirus Edition, and much more.

A Breath of Fresh Air - Is the Pandemic a Miracle?

Derek Rydall
Personally, I believe in miracles, but I don't believe this is one.

As a direct result of covid-19, the global pandemic, people are suffering.  People are dying.  People are losing their loved ones.  Healthcare workers are scared to go to work.  Some of us are struggling to get hold of the basic things we need.  And the economic consequences are yet to be seen.

Having said all that, there are some positive aspects as well.

The global lockdown in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic is having many positive, beneficial consequences.  Street crime, burglary and other crimes are down (although cyber crime and internet fraud are on the increase).  The air quality has improved, and the impact on the environment means that fewer are animals dying.  Go here for an article by Derek Rydall about the positive aspects of the coronavirus.  It's useful to have a fresh perspective. 

In the midst of all the disruption, confusion, fear, anxiety and despair, we need to smile and laugh more than ever. Go here for 17 of the funniest coronavirus tweets

Stuck inside with the covid-19 lockdown?  Fed up with self-isolation?  Missing human contact?  Getting stir crazy?  Climbing the walls?

Or are you a healthcare worker or provider working long shifts, having far too much human contact?

The coronavirus pandemic and the coronavirus lockdown are no fun, but these will bring a smile to your face

Latest Coronavirus Advice

Latest Coronavirus Advice
The advice about coronavirus changes daily, and even more frequently than that.

First, we were told we could go out, go for a walk, and go to the shops.

Then, the next day, we were advised we could go out for exercise, i.e. go for a walk.

The day after that, we were ordered to stay indoors.  (I suspect this was the plan all along.)  But I think we can still go for a walk, or a run, or to the shops.  Not that there's much left on the shelves.  

We need to stay indoors to try to avoid overloading the NHS, as the number of coronavirus cases is still on the rise.

Yet NHS staff are not being offered coronavirus tests - even though Prince Charles was able to obtain one.  How is this not placing a further burden on the NHS - when there are NHS staff members who are self-isolating, who would be able to go back to work if they tested negative for the virus?

The situation is very anxiety-producing.  Many people don't know what to do.  The advice is contradictory.  We don't know how long this crisis will last.  And it could go on for years. 

You can download the latest coronavirus advice from Imperal College.  The breakdown is in the first two pages. 

Meanwhile, WHO (The World Health Organisation) says that we need to test, test, test.  So try to get tested!  Not easy on the NHS, but worth a try.

For more details, see:  Keep Our NHS Public @keepnhspublic.  

Saw this on Jeremy Vine recently: Nutritionist Lowry Turner has said eating fresh fruit and veg, things high in fibre, boosts the immune system. Exercise and relaxation also help. 

For holistic healing of body, mnd and emotions,go here for my Violet Flame Healing Process.  This can relax you and boost your immunity.

According to the FT, Imperial College have also stated that the UK government's current policies regarding covid-19 have reduced the predicted deaths of 250,000 to 20,000.  Still an horrific number of deaths.

Self-Isolation and the Loneliness Epidemic

Self-Isolation and Loneliness

I was sent this link by a friend.  Robin Rice has done a great deal of work around loneliness.  Unfortunately, I was not aware of her work until now.

Loneliness is a a killer, as Seal once said.  It threatens our mental and physical health. 

In Self-Isolation and the Loneliness Epidemic, Robin Rice explores the effects of loneliness on our health, and makes some very practical suggestions about what we can do to allay it.

In the wake of the coronavirus, many more of us will be experiencing loneliness and isolation.  These have been a big part of my life for a long time.  I used to be able to jump on a bus and go shopping, visit a museum, or see friends at the Buddhist Centre.  I could avoid confronting my loneliness.  Then, in 2015, I was diagnosed with cancer.  Suddenly, everything changed.  The cancer is gone now, thank goodness.  But my life has changed significantly.

In London, where I live, or in any big city, it can be difficult to connect with others, and to maintain those connections. 

Now, with the coronavirus, things have changed again.  I have trouble getting to the shops, even with the help of my lovely care workers.  And when I can, it's hard to find even basic foodstuffs, like bread and butter.  Plus, we are now being advised to stay indoors.  So loneliness is becoming harder for me to avoid. 

Since about a week ago, when I started taking self-isolation seriously, my friends have really come through for me, dropping by with things I need, like cat food and chocolate brownies (brownies are essential in the current crisis).

I strongly recommend you read this article:  Self-Isolation and the Loneliness Epidemic.

Plus check out my blog post:  How to look after our Mental Health during the Coronavirus Crisis.

And for holistic healing, go here to download my Violet Flame Healing process.

One way we can look after our own mental health is by helping and supporting others.  

Keep well.  I wish you all the best.

How to Look after Our Mental Health during the Coronavirus Crisis

How to Look after Our Mental Health during Coronavirus Crisis
The government's advice to self-isolate during the coronavirus crisis, for those of us who either have a confirmed diagnosis or have even mild coronavirus symptoms, is not good news for those with mental health issues. Especially as self-isolation could go on for three to four months during this coronavirus outbreak. 

Just dealing with, and processing, the constant influx of coronavirus news is enough to trigger high levels of anxiety.  It's important to rely on reputable sources.  

One thing that can help will be performing random acts of kindness – contributing something to others, which can help us to feel less isolated, more connected. 

I am so fortunate to live in an area where there are lots of people around offering to help me, offering to do my shopping, etc., as well as friends and family members checking up on me to make sure I am okay.  I feel well looked after.  

You probably have people in your family or group of friends, or in your local area, who need your help and support, and you may be one of the amazing, beautiful souls who are helping others.
